I dream of having a bigsby-like vibrato on my mark king.
I think i've already seen one on john entwistle alembic.
Is that right? Is it possible?

There's a few pics of Alembics with tremelos in this old thread.
Stanley Clarke had the first one I ever saw on the cover of his 'I wanna play for you' album. Cuple of pics of it here

All I can tell you is that every tremolo we've ever installed on a bass has come off in later years. There's just no way to know if you will want it there in 10 years, but it's fun to experiment.
Maybe plan on a decorative inlay to disguise the former tremolo location if it ever comes to that.

If I put one, alembic will do it, nobody else.
well, if you're ok!!
